Poem for Today - Running Scared

RUNNING SCARED

Darkness
Running
Scared
Hiding
I can hear the breath on my neck!
Cower
Cry
Taking flight before the dawn light
Pain
Anger
Feet tiring under the weight
Blood
Sounds
Scream
Air racing in and out of my lungs
Shadows
Folowing
Darting
Mocking me at every turn
Why
How
When did I enlist the wrath?
Stairs
Sprint
Spiral
Falling down into a pit
Dark
Dank
Putrid air filled rooms
Insanity
Creeping
Final breath
Death!
